    I see that too. Baseline players that never come to the net for fear of getting hit by opponents baseline shot. Should not happen because it's practically impossible to get hurt in that scenario if opponent is playing at the same level.

    punch your volleys,...

    I see many players with a fear of being hit at the net. Not sure why. Sure on an opponents overhead you can possibly get hurt, but you usually have time to take cover from an overhead if necessary, but I don't see the danger in getting hit with a volley. I've never really seen anyone Get...

    Official Sureshs tribute thread

    I remember some kids in school getting roughed up for their lunch money. No lunch for them. Souresh apparently never had that problem as he looks to have never missed any lunches. :rolleyes:

    punch your volleys,...

    True... If I could control my volley, that would be a great place to aim for. Close to the body on opponents Forehand side.

    3.0 Most will switch grips on volley and it is commonly taught that way... Very workable at this level as pace is generally slower. I see many players with pretty decent reflexes as they switch grips on fast volley exchanges. 4.0 Players will try to progress to continental grip for all volleys...

    Were these reflex volleys with both players up at net? Sands was doing the volley to volley drill at the net.Really crushing it at close range. In certain situations, like FH body close to body, she wants rec players to switch grips on those bang bang volleys. She says it's difficult but...

    Sands advises switching to FH grip when jammed on the body volley.

    Have been studying the New Green Deal. Zero emissions is the goal for gassy cows within 10 years. Sad for Airplanes. Sad for The Drop Volley. :( “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting...

    punch your volleys,...

    Hitting a good volley is like punching someone in the nose – at least that is the gospel from Rod Laver, who executed the stroke to near perfection while becoming the only player in the history of tennis to win the Grand Slam on two occasions (1962, 1969). In his updated and re-released...

    Cut the Cable!!!

    . I have Amazon Prime but haven't really watched anything on it. Saw some Twilight Zone episodes. Think they have all of the episodes on there.

    isnt this a weird explanation of the kick serve by Philippousis?

    I would put them on their knees. Forces them to get the toss correct -- over their head. If they open up to slice, it won't go over the net.

    punch your volleys,...

    I think the key is that Rafter transfers the weight with his legs. So at contact his legs are in the air. Arms have to do virtually nothing... I think Sampras? said, "Volley with your feet".

    isnt this a weird explanation of the kick serve by Philippousis?

    Sounds like if someone can hit slice, they are close to hitting topspin. All they need to do is to change the toss and brush up with a more sideways left-to-right swing path.
